What animal was affected by the use of DDT to point of becoming an endangered species?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Bald Eagle, and other raptors such as the Peregrine Falcon, and Osprey populations were devastated by DDT. The long term exposure nearly wiped them out. Many other birds were affected as well, Robins in one instance were killed outright on a campus when the trees were sprayed to protect them from a disease. But the raptors suffered the worst exposure, the DDT stayed in the food chain creating a domino effect, so they ingested it in greater quantities. For more details, please see the sites listed below.

What class do Flounder belong to?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Flounders belong to the Actinoterygii class

The Actinopterygii (the plural form of Actinopterygius) constitute the class of the ray-finned fishes.

The ray-finned fishes are so called because they possess lepidotrichia or "fin rays", their fins being webs of skin supported by bony or horny spines ("rays"), as opposed to the fleshy, lobed fins that characterize the class Sarcopterygii which also, however, possess lepidotrichia.

What is the normal life span of a RBC?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I can't say specifically why 120 days but it is particularly shorter than other cells because it becomes worn down fast from so much work. It does not have a nucleus to help it reproduce on its own, nor mitochondria that normally serves as an energy source for cells or other organelles to help maintain it. It is eventually broken down by the body and new RBCs are rebuilt in the bone marrow.
